‘No room for neo-Nazism’:


Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -


Ivanka Trump, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s daugh­ter and a White House ad­viser, ex­plic­itly con­demned “white supremacy, racism and neo-Nazism” late Satur­day in a man­ner her fa­ther seems re­luc­tant to do.

The tweets come on the an­niver­sary of deadly un­rest trig­gered by a white su­prem­a­cist rally in Char­lottesville, Vir­ginia. A sim­i­lar far-right rally is sched­uled for Sun­day out­side the White House. “One year ago in Char­lottesville, we wit­nessed an ugly dis­play of ha­tred, racism, big­otry & vi­o­lence,” Ivanka Trump tweeted.

“While Amer­i­cans are blessed to live in a na­tion that pro­tects lib­erty, free­dom of speech and di­ver­sity of opin­ion, there is no place for white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism in our great coun­try,” she said.

“Rather than tear­ing each other down with ha­tred, racism & vi­o­lence, we can lift one an­other up, strengthen our com­mu­ni­ties and strive to help ev­ery Amer­i­can achieve his or her full po­ten­tial!”

The tweets are no­table be­cause her fa­ther drew scorn af­ter the Char­lottesville blood­shed for ini­tially avoid­ing any con­dem­na­tion of the torch-bear­ing white su­prem­a­cists who took part in that rally. (AFP)
